Why Bayards supports Water Revolution

“Bayards Yacht Structures is dedicated to ensuring that future generations can also experience the wonders of a thriving and healthy ocean. We believe that aluminium holds the potential to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the superyacht industry. Notable attributes include its endless recyclability with minimal energy consumption, and its lightweight nature which leads to substantial fuel savings. Bayards are collaborating with our suppliers to introduce Ultra Low Carbon Footprint Aluminium to the industry—aluminium that is recycled using renewable energy sources.

We understand that good intentions alone aren’t sufficient. Objectively quantifiable data is crucial to differentiate genuine sustainability efforts from mere greenwashing. We are honored to partner with the Water Revolution Foundation to thoroughly analyze and quantify every aspect of the production process and lifecycle of our aluminium yacht structures.”
